This Week at Community Church

Dear Community Church,
Easter was really great. It was nice to have so many friends and neighbors come and join us for our services.  I had a lot of positive feedback about our Good Friday speaker, Josh Sofaer, also. I hope to have Josh back sometime in the future. This week we are jumping back into our Digging Deeper series, with a message on the Trinity called “Three in One”. That God is Triune in nature and is a central theology for Christians. However, we don’t find the word trinity in the scriptures. We will dig into this somewhat mysterious issue on Sunday. If you want to study in advance look at Genesis 1:1-2, Genesis 1:26, John 1:1-3, John 16:5-15, Romans 1:1-6, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Matthew 3:16-17, Deuteronomy 6:4. (I will give you and Easter Egg if you actually read all of these before church)!
Spaghetti Dinner Friday Night
Our Youth Fundraiser Spaghetti Dinner is this Friday night at 6 pm in the Chapel. Tickets are $10. There will be a dessert auction and some other fun and games. I promise it will be fun, and the dinner will be great. Bob Pool is cooking the sauce and I’m cooking the pasta and we are highly committed to making it just right!
Community Church Wednesday Night
This week is the last week for our Alpha program. I want to thank Sherry Metcalfe and her team for all of their hard work to bring this program to our church. I hope many of you feel inspired to help when we roll this out again for people in our community in the Summertime. Next week, we will start new men’s and women’s studies. The women are doing a series called Seemless that give a six week overview of the Bible as one united story. Books are available from Pam Barnes. The TuesdayMorning Women’s Study will be meeting at 9 am and doing the same series. The men will be doing something equally awesome!
The Big Six-Oh
This Sunday is my 60th birthday. You are all invited to have a piece of cake with me after church in the Mary Johnson Center after the second service. We are also serving my favorite beer. A&W (diet and regular). Please don’t bring any presents!
Standing Firm,
Pastor Mike

This Week at Community Church

Dear Community Church,
I just got back from the Christmas Party that our LIFT group hosted at the SNF unit.. It was a beautiful example of reaching out and sharing love in our own town. Good job to Suzzy, Penny, and the many helpers that made it happen.
This week Pastor Jeff Tunnell is coming to share a message with our church. This is going to be one you don’t want to miss, as Pastor Jeff shares and reflects on the miraculous events of this past year and the things he has learned about God, faith, and community in the context of this special time when we celebrate the birth of our Savior!
All Church Christmas Party this coming Sunday evening, December 18th. The party starts at 5 pm in the Chapel with a play by our children “Star of Wonder”. The church is providing the turkey and ham.  We’d like you all to  provide your favorite side-dish and/or dessert. We have lots of fun stuff planned. Come share the warm time with our church family. I promise you will be glad you did!
Watts Powerhouse Church is coming up for the day this Saturday. Weather permitting, we are planning to take 25-30 people sledding. We are looking for gloves, hats, scarfs that you might be able to donate for this activity. We anticipate a continuing relationship with this ministry. We are going to try and build up a stock of these things for when we have “city folks” visit. If you want to help with the event contact Raven at 909-866-7523.
Our Men’s Saturday Morning Bacon and Bible Study and Adult SundaySchool class are continuing at their regular times this week.
Standing Firm,
Pastor Mike
